Tu-polev for the Road?

Xuntong Models from China has just released some details of their new Tupolev Tu-2 light bombers in 1/48th scale – and we have the pictures of the built up test kit for your Sunday leisure.

We have three kits of the Tupolev family from this new company – all variants of the Tupolev Tu-2 – which was a light fast bomber in the class of the German Ju-88 and the American B-20/25/26’s
Although this aircraft hasn’t received much attention from model making companies as of yet this looks like a great kit from these – relatively newcomers in the field.. 

Here we have some built up shots showing just what kind of quality can be expected from the completed kit..
